Everyone loves ices on a hot summer day! But what if we just grabbed a hot dog and need something refreshing and…parve?


Edy’s parent brand line of refreshing frozen snacks under the brand Outshine is a refreshing snack made with real ingredients like fruit and fruit juice. Great, but can it be eaten after the hot dog? Or, for that matter, after a Shabbos meal?



The Edy’s Outshine Creamy Coconut Fruit Bar and their Fruit and Cream bars are dairy, but there are also many parve flavors:


  • Acai Blueberry
  • Grape
  •  Lemon
  • Lime
  • Mango
  • Pineapple
  • Pomegranate
  • Strawberry; and
  • Tangerine


As well as multi-packs featuring:

  • Coconut, Pineapple, and Orange
  • Grape, Cherry, and Tangerine
  • Lime, Strawberry, and Wildberry
  • No Sugar Added Black Cherry, Strawberry-Kiwi, and Mixed Berry; and  
  • No Sugar Added Strawberry, Tangerine, and Raspberry


So go ahead and enjoy Outshine Ices after the hot dog, but watch out for the dairy flavors. If uncertain about a certification status please call the OU Kosher office at 212-613-8241 or email [email protected].
